One of the greatest, along with Bob De Niro, actors of all time. His highlights include; The Godfather trilogy, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Glengarry Glen Ross, Heat etc. He has been nominated several times, but has one Best Actor for Scent of a Woman (Not his best performance).
"Hoo-ah!!" - Scent of a Woman
One of the coolest and greatest actors alive (along with Robert De Niro
.) I'd include Marlon Brando but he's passed away now. Brando was also great because without him there wouln't have been a Pacino or De Niro.
1- Starred in the Godfather part I, II and III as Michael Corleone
2- Starred in Scarface as Tony Montana
3- Several other movies that are including Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Dick Tracy, Scent of a Woman etc.
"Never let your enemies know what you're thinking. "
Pacino to Andy Garcia in Godfather III
"If history has taugh us anything is that you can kill anyone. "
Pacino in Godfather II
reapeated Oh I dunno a 100 times maybe as Tony Montana in Scarface.
Sean Penn may have won this year's Oscar but he's no Pacino.
along with de niro and nicholson, he is the best actor of his generation. although his recent movies have sucked balls, he still makes them watchable because of his presence and extraordinary acting
al pacino has only one oscar. ONE!!!!
He is the sexiest man alive.
Al Pacino is one of the most amazing actors ever, and is incredibly sexy, even for an old man.
Possibly the greatest actor of all time in Western culture.
Has won only one Academy Award, the following list is the films he should have won an Oscar for:
The Godfather Part II
Dog Day Afternoon
...And Justice for All
Should have gotten a nom for The Devil's Advocate and Heat.
Now, the following is a list of actors who won instead of Pacino and their films:
Joel Grey for Cabaret ( Give me a break )
Jack Lemmon for Save The Tiger ( Stewie Griffin Laugh )
Art Carney for Harry and Tonto ( A man and his cat....WTF? )
Jack Nicholson for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ( understandable )
Dustin Hoffman for Kramer vs Kramer ( AHAHAHAHA, BS! )
Robert Duvall for Tender Mercies ( This beat Scarface...how? )
Tom Hanks for Philadelphia ( Right.....yeaaaaaah )
There's only one word to describe Pacino's lack of Academy Awards, Pure Hollywood Bullshit.
" Al Pacino Is The Greatest Actor Who Ever Lived! "
" Pacino kicks the crap out of everybody "
" Pacino has managed to perfect the role of an Honest Cop, a Gangster, a Lawyer with a conscience, a Drug Lord, A Theif and a Mafia Boss. For this, he deserves respect, a shit load of respect. "
The greatest living actor
's always good even in movies that aren't so hot
first off i'd like to say pacino is the greatest of all time. I mean come one! You cant deney that statement! The Godfather, Te Godfather II, The Godfather III, Scareface, Heat, Any Given Sunday!!! I Love Robert De Niro, but he is no pacino. O and about Robert De Niro, His name is Robert De Niro not Bob de niro, give me a break "Kyle". I know bob is short for robert, but he is known as Robert De Niro, not Bob De Niro. Get your head on straight paizan. O and one last thing. I would like to point out that both Pacino and De Niro are Italian!!!
People think that rappers are gangsters, but Pacino is the real thug!!!
I will always remember him as tony montana, even though he has many other great performances.
Should have won best actor for scarface.
